Tuttosport: Roma join Milan in pursuit of Man Utd and Spurs centre-backs

By Oliver Fisher -

Roma are interested in signing two defenders that have been linked with a move to AC Milan in recent days, according to a report.

According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Roma are continuing to work on signing Manchester United’s Eric Bailly as he is Jose Mourinho’s favoured target for the defensive department and the Giallorossi have already asked the Red Devils about a loan with option to buy deal including to have part of the salary paid by his current club.

There are difficulties though because of the salary obstacle and the interest of Sevilla, which means Roma director Tiago Pinto has begun to evaluate the alternatives. Marcos Senesi of Feyenoord, Japhet Tanganga of Tottenham (also a target of Milan) and free agent Dan-Axel Zagadou are targets.

The Athletic are among the sources who have reported that Milan are interested in signing Bailly as they are in the market for a new centre-back, while Tanganga has been linked by virtually every source.

  1. Roma are just chasing every defender we chase at this point and the reason is always Mourinho liked them when he coached them 😂

  2. Roma can always take Lindelof, please

    £5, million loan fee, pay his salary and a £15, million obligation to buy next Summer 🙏🙏🙏

    1. If Eric goes to Roma he’ll be revived by Jose Mourinho. The issue of players underperformance at times is due to the coach, who might lack ideas on how to deploy and use them. Jose brought Eric to Man.U and he played well under him before his departure. Certainly, he’ll still do well at Roma under Mourinho’s watch. You can take it to the bank.

  3. It’s a no brianer for Eric to reunite with Jose Mourinho at Roma. Certainly, that’s his best option. Jose brought him to Man. U and he played well under him. Thus, he’ll do the same under him at Roma. He’ll also be a very good addition to Roma’s defense. I’ll be glad to see him at Roma with Mourinho. I hope the deal goes through. All the best for both men.
